Jonathan Edwards is the first album by the singer-songwriter Jonathan Edwards. The album received some mainstream attention thanks to the catchy political-pop single, "Sunshine".
"Athens County" was recorded under the title "Sweet Maria (Athens County)" by the Montana bluegrass group Mission Mountain Wood Band in 1977 for their first album, In Without Knocking. The song "Shanty" is used as the "Friday Song" on various "classic rock" FM radio stations; played at various times every Friday, it represents the unofficial start of the weekend. The song "Sunshine" was used in a Jeep commercial, and was also featured on the soundtrack for the film Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy.
